ADHD, self-esteem, and rejection, don’t impact our relationship to some point, but as people who both understand it from having lived it for years, we understand it and can get through it much easier.
We both have our different types of trauma that we’ve dealt with, but we understand each other and, to a degree, what the other has been through, so it’s much easier for us to relate and problem solve.
In looking at why this has happened to myself and others like me, I’ve come to learn that a lot of high-functioning people with autism, such as myself, have endured trauma, such as rejection because they’re predisposed to interpret things negatively and to react both impulsively and defensively to the situations life throws at them.
I never saw myself as a trauma victim, but I’ve learned that repeated rejection is absolutely a form of trauma and I know firsthand how it impacts not only the brain but the way you think and the way you approach everyday life and the situations that it throws at you.
When you’ve had very few things that have turned out positively in your life it’s hard to look at things with an open mind and instead, you see things as you’ve always seen them.
If you’ve never truly been able to trust the people in your life, why would you think that anyone would understand you now? The truth is that you wouldn’t.
The thing is that all of this is hard-wired into your brain over time and no matter how hard you try to get back to being your normal, happy, non-depressed self who believes in themselves, it’s not an overnight process and it takes work.
It takes help from a trained professional and it takes help from your loved ones around you. If, like me, you suffer from any or all these problems, know that they can be repaired, but that it will take time, effort and patience.
